Partnership and Context Module

When working to address a common goal, partnerships offer a framework for collaboration and shared connections between groups, organizations, and communities. This module outlines some considerations to keep in mind prior to entering a partnership.

Strangers in the Street

Dwayne Dixon, anthropologist and documentary filmmaker, describes how while waiting for a scheduled meeting with an elementary-school student who was one of his research subjects, he filmed the area around the student’s school. He recounts how the reaction of school officials led him to decide to stop filming and discusses how this illustrates the unspoken and shifting differences between public and private space.
